Learn from Jesus’ Paradoxes
- Monday, June 19, 2006
* Dying to live: Don’t search for significance in the wrong pursuits, such as personal achievement, wealth, fame, status, or self-improvement. Realize that the only way to truly attain significance is by sacrificing your own plans and embracing God’s plans for you. Ask God to help you want what you need. Join God where He is at work, and enjoy the adventure. Let go of relationships that hinder your intimacy with God; make sure He’s your top priority, and you’ll find all the love you need. Abandon selfishness to gain real life.
